A few weeks ago I went out in search of hawks to photograph. Every since I was a young boy I have always enjoyed watching hawks. I got very lucky and had a light phase rough legged hawk land on a telephone pole right by my car. In my haste to get the shots I must hit the selector switch on my camera and switched modes. I ended up with a way too low shutter speed. I am slowly getting over this mess up. Somehow I did manage to salvage two photos of this magnificent bird. I guess the only good thing from this mistake is that I will be unlikely to ever make the same error again.
